Origins Available: Dutch, German


Bavaria, Germany is the original homeland of the Göes family. Göes is a patronymic name, a type of surname that derived from the given name of the father of the original bearer. Göes was derived from the given name Gosse, from the German noun of the same spelling, which means God.

Göes Early Origins



The surname Göes was first found in Bavaria, where since ancient times the Goss family made significant contributions to the advancement of the district's feudal society. Being prominent in social affairs, the family Goss was closely associated to the turbulent events of the period and therefore formed alliances with other distinguished families of the region.

The Great Migration



European migration to North America began in the mid-17th century and continued unabated until the mid-20th. Many Bavarians made the long trip to escape poverty or persecution based on their religious beliefs. The chance for tenant farmers to own their own land was also a major drawing card. They settled all across the United States in Pennsylvania, Texas, New York, Illinois, and California. Many came to Canada also, settling in Ontario and the prairie provinces. Analysis of immigration records has shown some of the first Göess to arrive in North America, and among them were:
